How to Create a Splash Page?

The easiest way to make a splash page in WordPress is to use a website builder plugin.

  • OptinMonster
  • Elementor Pro
  • The Divi Builder

Create a Splash Page guide, like:

  • Professionally designed landing page templates
  • Lead-focused content blocks
  • Pre-built page sections
  • Popular email integrations

  • And much more

Create a one-page website, or a landing page. In this example, we’ll create a site that could be used to collect email addresses. Businesses, blogs, or organizations might choose to link to this kind of page from social media, or through advertisements.

To get started, create your website on WordPress.com. You can then select your perfect theme. Click on My Sites, and Themes. We’ll choose a theme that has a static homepage already set. because that’s what we want. Karuna works well for this example because it’s set up as a static homepage.

Depending on the theme you choose, your new site may appear with some placeholder content. Since this is just a landing page, we’ll delete most of the pre-populated posts and pages. Click on My Sites, and then on Posts, and delete the posts by clicking on the trash can.

Then, click on Pages, and delete all the pages except Home. Then you can click on Home to customize the page settings and content. Edit the title, text, and add a contact form. We’ll go ahead and delete all the fields except the name and email fields.

Edit your page template to make it full width, or use the front page template, depending on your theme. Now, update your page. Then, launch the Customizer to edit your website’s look. The first thing we’ll do is make sure the static front page is set.

You can edit the title, or, upload a logo. The Customizer is also where you could change the colors, the fonts, and the header image. Your new site may appear with a ton of great widgets that you could use to promote your content. For this example, we’ll go ahead and delete some, to keep the page as simple as possible. Save your changes, and that’s it. Your new page is ready to go.
